First Wild Card Book Tours Presents: My First Handy Bible by Cecilie Olesen

It is time for a FIRST Wild Card Tour book review! If you wish to join the FIRST blog alliance, just click the button. We are a group of reviewers who tour Christian books. A Wild Card post includes a brief bio of the author and a full chapter from each book toured. The reason it is called a FIRST Wild Card Tour is that you never know if the book will be fiction, non~fiction, for young, or for old...or for somewhere in between! Enjoy your free peek into the book!

My Review:
First this is darling, right sized Bible for little hands. They cannot hurt it, it is nice and chunky. The cover is full of bright colors to draw them in. It has a bright yellow clasp and handle drag it around!!
The pages are thick cardboard, with wonderfully illustrated little stories. You are able to hold the little one on your lap and they can point and hold the book as you share the verses.
What a great gift this would make some happy little one.

I received this book through the First Wild Card Tours Publicity Program, and was not required to give a positive review.
